Providing travel colleagues a lifeline in their time of need, Abta LifeLine provides practical, financial and emotional assistance to anyone who has worked, or is working for an Abta member, or engaged in the sale of Abta products.

In 2020 the charity saw hardship cases resulting from furlough, those not eligible for self-income support and business owners not able to apply for any personal financial support.

LifeLine has also seen an increase in need for mental health and wellbeing support as a direct result of the pandemic. From employees made redundant to business owners worried about company failure and those experiencing verbal and even physical abuse from customers.
